NPR has built an interactive graphic detailing the United States' power grid. [via Flowing Data]
I like how this can be published, but you cannot take a picture of a building or a camera anymore.
…The amazing thing is that there’s far fewer points of redundancy that I would have expected from a nationwide power grid. On the other hand, the real surprise is how devoid of major power feeds West Texas is.
Agreed with #1, I’m sick of the criminalization of photography.
Oh shoot. Now the terrorists will know where the wires are.
I believe its pronounced “wharrrs”.
Perfect! Now the solar flares will know EXACTLY where to hit.
Well. Didn’t all those comments just pierce the issues with light and clarity.
Did I hear someone say Power Grid?
It’s a terrific board game and the map is pretty similar to NPR’s.
There are at least 3 errors in Colorado, New Mexico and Wyoming on this map and I suspect more elsewhere.
#9: It’s to through off them there terr’sts.
